Spurs manager Harry Redknapp prepares to send David Beckham back to Los Angeles this week after the player has trained with the club for the past two months, and hasn’t ruled out a bid for the player when his Galaxy contract expires in November.
The former England captain has been training with the club to keep himself fit for the new US season, having spent the past two winters playing for AC Milan in Italy.
Beckham will play one last season at LA Galaxy, but will be out of contract in November, having spent 5 years at the club, and is free to join another club.
Beckham will return on Wednesday having trained with the club, who tried to sign him on loan for the winter period, but couldn’t get a deal through because of insurance restrictions.
“I think David will go back on the ninth (of February),” Redknapp said this week.
“I would like to have had him playing as he has looked great in training.
“He is so slim and so fit, he is a fanatical trainer. He works in the morning and the afternoon in the gym. He just loves playing football.
“He could be at home now sitting around the pool. I am sure he has a decent enough semi in Los Angeles but he is over here wanting to play football. Most footballers would want to be in Los Angeles.
“But that is what has made him what he is. He wants to keep playing and he is a mega rich man. He just loves the game.”
Spurs kept at the heat on the top four with a 1-0 win away at Blackburn on Wednesday night. A Beckham like ball from the left foot of Van Der Vaart found the head of Peter Crouch who scored the game’s only goal and it is Beckhams delivery that makes him such an attractive prospect to Redknapp.
Asked if he may make a bid for the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player, Harry said, “I could do, yeah. I love him, I love the way he plays. That ball that van der Vaart hit for Crouchy, David hit about seven of them the other morning in training.
“It was like he had radar and Crouchy kept heading them in the goal. I kept saying ‘That’s what I have been asking you to do, lads’.
“David has been fantastic. He is a top-class bloke. He has been great around the place. You would love to have him at your club.”
